Old Fashioned Soda Crackers

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

4 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or oleo
1 1/2 cups water
Salt for sprinkling

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter till crumbly. Add water and stir just till barely mixed. Knead about three minutes on a lightly floured board. Generously flour your surface. Divide the dough into fourths. Working one portion at a time, roll to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut in 2- or 2 1/2-inch squares. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart. I like to use a fork to prick each square four times evenly spaced. Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
